At the Wimpole Aesthetics, Dr Joshua Berkowitz offers painless Pearly Penile Papule Treatment to remove any papules for good. An electro-surgical instrument or a CO2 laser is used along with local anaesthetic.

The electro-surgical instrument that Dr Berkowitz uses is called a hyfrecator; although we also offer treatment with a CO2 laser, it is more expensive and less effective than the hyfrecator so most patients opt for this treatment. This method is safe, efficacious and accurate. After the procedure the healing is quick and all is back to normal about a week later.

Pearly penile papules are normal anatomic structures of the penis. They occur in about 20% of the male population. They are small papules, about 1-2 mm in size, closely spaced circumferentially around the corona of the penis. The papules are usually skin coloured and domed and give the corona a cobblestone pattern. Large pearly papules may be mistaken for condylomata acuminata (warts) or molluscum contagious.

There is sometimes confusion between Fordyce spots and Pearly Penile Papules, or vice versa. Fordyce spots are found on the shaft of the penis rather than around the corona of the penis. Fordyce spots are quite natural and should not effect the function of the penis at all. Whilst Fordyce spots treatments are not essential, Fordyce spots may be aesthetically displeasing and a potential drain on self confidence. Dr Josh is available to offer Fordyce Spot removal treatment if needed; he will assess the exact nature of individual cases, the best route for treatment and then removal of the Fordyce Spot.

Like Fordyce spots, Pearly Penile Papules in themselves are innocent and without any symptoms, but they often arouse some anxiety. Reassurance from a medical practitioner may be all that is needed but most patients would prefer to remove the papules if possible.

What Does Getting Started With Us Look Like?

If you’ve been considering an aesthetic treatment to rejuvenate your skin or reshape your body, then the first step is to get in touch with the clinic to arrange a consultation with our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz or one of his team, depending on your requirements.

Call us on 0207 224 2247 or email us on info@wimpoleaesthetics.co.uk to arrange your consultation.

The consultation is an essential part of the patient journey as it gives us the opportunity to discuss your objectives and the outcome you’re hoping to achieve. We will talk you through the procedure or treatment plan, clearly explain any possible risks and the results you can expect, as well as answer all of your questions.

Procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are carried out under the direction of our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz and his team. We aim to deliver practical, safe and effective medical aesthetic alternatives to cosmetic surgery whilst always respecting a patient’s privacy, dignity and confidentiality.

Our care and support continues after you leave the clinic. You are provided with comprehensive aftercare advice appropriate to the treatment you have received and we welcome patients getting in touch if they have any questions regarding their experience and results.

At Wimpole Aesthetics, we provide a wide variety of medical treatments and non-surgical rejuvenating procedures in the field of anti-ageing and aesthetic medicine. Our medical director Dr Joshua Berkowitz stays abreast of the latest developments in this field, but always ensures that any treatment we offer can deliver safe and effective results.

We love to hear our patients tell us that we have the feel of a local clinic right in the heart of London’s medical district.

At the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre, Dr Joshua Berkowitz is able to painlessly remove the papules under local anaesthetic. He uses an electro-surgical instrument known as a hyfrecator. They can also be removed using a CO2 laser, but it is more expensive and not always as effective so patients usually opt for the hyfrecator treatment.

This method is safe, efficacious and accurate. Dr Berkowitz believes that his method of removing pearly penile papules is better than using cryo-cautery or a CO2 laser.

After the Pearly penile papule treatment procedure, the healing process is very quick and all is back to normal about a week later. You are advised to abstain from sex or masturbation for about ten days to ensure the skin on the penis recovers completely, but other normal activities can be resumed immediately.

Dr Joshua Berkowitz charges £895 for the consultation and procedure performed on the same day. This is a package cost. Should patients wish to only book a consultation, there is a fee of £250. If at a later date they choose to proceed with the treatment on a separate date, the treatment fee is £895.

“Thank you to all the staff at Wimpole Aesthetic Centre for their help, in particular Dr Berkowitz. Silly as it may sound, I feel like a new man following my pearly penile papules removal treatment. I wish I had done it years ago!”

Stephen, Brighton: Pearly Penile Papules Removal Patient

“I had suffered from Pearly Penile Papules for most of my adult life and had been embarrassed about them since they first appeared. I decided to look into the removal of the papules a couple of years ago but could not find anywhere specialising in this problem. When a friend recently informed me about Dr Berkowitz and the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre, I immediately booked an appointment. I had my consultation and treatment on the same day and the results have been perfect!”

Derek, London: Pearly Penile Papules Patient

“I had penile papules for years and it had become a real problem for me – more psychologically than anything else. I found it difficult to have self-confidence with new sexual partners and the more time went on, the worse I felt about the whole situation. Eventually, I decided to do something about it, and after months of personal research on the internet I found Dr Joshua Berkowitz at the Wimpole Aesthetic Centre in London. Following an initial telephone conversation, I visited the clinic for a pearly penile papule consultation and a few weeks later I underwent the procedure. It was a total success and within around 9 to 10 days of the procedure, any mild soreness had gone. I’m the happiest I’ve been for years since the removal of the penile papules and I would recommend it to any other man suffering or worrying about this problem. Finally, I feel that I can go back to having a normal sex life without being ashamed of my body.”

What our patients say

Natalie and Dr Josh have been incredible in boosting my confidence and my skin! They truly listen and deliver 100% natural results every time. Natalie is completely honest, professional, has integrity and that’s why I trust her fully. Wimpole clinic have a much greater range of cutting edge treatments beyond anti wrinkle treatment that have resulted in my skin improving with age. It’s mad but true. They always assess what is right for my face and my skin on the day and advise according to what my skin needs. I’ve been going to Wimpole Aesthetics for years now, initially drawn to their incredible IV boosts but am now unable to ever turn back. Class, quality and aesthetic results that are truly worth it!!!

Dr Josh is a caring and knowledgeable doctor, his consultation is very detailed, he answered all the questions that I am concerned. Dr Natalie did the filler and skin booster, she takes care of me a lot, even after the treatment she still cares about me, I booked the review after two weeks, highly recommended! Btw, they have a Chinese speaking staff so don’t worry if you are not familiar with medical terminology!

I have been living with scarring above my upper lip, as a result of electrolysis treatment 25 years ago, in the form of a deep vertical line and small indentations in the skin. I sought help from Wimpole Aesthetics, and from the moment that I entered the small, personal clinic I was totally put at ease and welcomed by the extremely professional and friendly team. I received a course of Mesotherapy and Dermapen treatment and am absolutely delighted with the results. I had almost given up on ever having smooth line-free skin above my upper lip again. I highly recommend letting Wimpole Aesthetics take care of you.

5 star

Having lived in Australia for over 10 years, my skin had suffered mild sun-damage and had developed a lot of discolouration on my face in particular. Also, as I approached the age of 40, I noticed a lot of wrinkles appearing! I decided to have Microdermabrasion treatment and the improvements after just 3 treatments were extremely encouraging. I have booked a further 2 treatments in coming months and I am so excited about seeing further benefits to the look and texture of my skin.
